    1. The tour lasts 3 hours and a half 2. The Sanjay Colony is next to a metro station. The guides meet you there and bring you back as well after the family lunch (they are very lovely)

    You can definitely do tours with larger groups of people. The group will be divided into a few smaller groups so that there will be a maximum of 6 people per guide.
